I used to work in Salem and at least once a week someone in the office was going to Red's Sandwich shop. The sandwiches were quite large and I usually only needed half. The staff was always friendly and I agree the place was alway packed. I reccomend if going for take out to call ahead.
I love the bread and dipping sauce while you wait. The variety and atmosphere is great. It's been a little while since I've been but to sit outside and enjoy a good meal at a place where the wait staff is friendly and the desserts are good, is nice to find is such a wonderful downtown.
Growing in Grace is the best place for your children. Heidi and Ann are wonderful and we love them! They teach using christian principals. They have a small ratio and very reasonable rates. They get to go outside daily and have different themes for each week. They have water play in the summer and they go on the occasional field trip. My daughter is thriving under their care! Thank you Heidi and Ann.
I tried this place when my kids daycare was closed for the holidays and I still had to work. My employer has a deal with them for reasonable rates and it was awesome. The kids had a great time and keep asking me when they can go back. I felt very safe leaving them there. You have to be buzzed in to the main door. You supply the food and snacks so you know what your child will be eating if they will be there during a meal. We've also brought them there t go Christmas shopping, they are conveniently next to Toys R us and the mall. They have games, activity centers, and a back room for older kids to play video games and hang out.
This place is like the Courtyard in Newburyport. The roastbeef is good and there are similar items on the menu. If you can't ge over the bridge to NBPT this is a great alternative.
They have GREAT fried clams. Whether it's eat in or take out they are ready to welcome you. Locals have been going there for years for a reason. They know everybody and everybody knows them. There will be a wait but it's worth it! There is a bar area and a seating area. Not a huge menu but good variety.
This place has some of the best food in town. Their baked haddock on Fridays is the best, better get there early. Their baked macaroni and cheese is the best anywhere. Lots of locals and Newburyport "atmosphere" to be had. They do breakfast too.
We love this place, we've been going there since they were just a walk in place called the Beef Coral. The Roast beef is the BEST around and there onion rings are the best too! I have moved away and still miss it and every time we're in town first thing on the agenda is to go to Courtyard.
I love going to this place, it is clean and it has Sushi. The sushi is very fresh and has a good selection. There are many selections on the buffet, although I did miss the white rice. There is a good selection of some things for the kids that don't want to try the Chinese options. They even have an ice cream bar. Highly recommended.
My son's bike had a flat back tire not just the tube but a whole in the tire part too. I called Choice and talked to a very friendly gentelman and he said no problem they could fix it. I brought it down and did some other errands and it was fixed all for $10.00! I was so pleased! When the alternative was to go to the store buy a tube buy a tire and try to take the tire off and on correctly by myself I'm so glad that they were there!
